beyond love

D. W. Metz

i love you beyond love
i feel you beyond touch
as i wake to your poetry
under skies yet to be painted
you speak to me beyond words
verses welcome me to morning
i awake from your words
before the autumn sun
rising from dark sheets
all innocence abandoned
a new life found
in the augury of language
scenes of your creation
conjure movies in my mind
beautifully complex
i want to taste every facet
to experience every touch
and savor every sound
i am yours entirely
i want to whisper it to your ears
and let it spill down your neck
as it drips from my lips
like warm honey
i want you to forever hear
the confession of my soul
echoing through your bones
